“It is rewarding-and sad- to see and hear the gratitude for very small acts of kindness, from kids who have never felt they had anyone to depend on. I told one of my CASA kids recently how much I admire his ability to make the best of a bad situation after his father abandoned him and left the state. He said that if the person who was supposed to love him and care for him treated him that way….. He’d better learn to take care of himself. That saddens me, but it also inspires me to help him achieve his goals. There would be some justice in that.”

The time commitment to a case varies depending upon the nature and the stage of the case. Volunteers sometimes say that there is a greater amount of work in the beginning of the case, when they are conducting their initial research. On average, you can expect to spend approximately 15 – 20 hours a month on a case. Once a volunteer is assigned to a case, he/she must have face to face contact with the child at least twice a month which may require travel outside of Collin County. Some time is also spent making contact with people who are involved in the child’s life.
